Stoner Honoured at Phillip Island

October 24, 2012  •  1 Comment

Casey Stoner has been honoured by Andrew Fox of the Linfox Group by having turn three named "Stoner Corner". Stoner has had tremendous success at Phillip Island with no less than 5 wins, and a sixth on the line this weekend. Turn three has become synonymous with Stoner as the only rider that can drive through the corner at max speed with the rear wheel spinning and the bike "crossed up". In Stoner's 2007 lap record machine data reveals a maximum speed of 262 kmh in the corner, only dropping to 258kmh at the slowest point in turn three.
